+1 on the M&P. I have an original Smith and Wesson M&P .357 Sig. It just feels better in my hands than the Glock. Smith & Wesson discontinued them because of the .40 S&W "craze". Now that statistics and history are showing the .40 to "not be quite as much as advertised" maybe there will be some re-interest in the .357 Sig. Only time will tell. It may end up to the semi auto word as the .41 Mag. did to the revolver world. It is still a fine cartridge if you can handle it.

Steyr M357A1. Great gun to begin with and the bore axis/grip angle work perfectly for the 357 SIG in my opinion.

My first 357 Sig and my first M&P experience was a M&P Compact.

I really liked the Compact and it was very accurate.

I later acquired a full size M&P in 357 Sig and was happy with it also.

I really like my H&K VP40 with a 357 Sig conversion barrel. It is my nightstand gun and because I use a VP9 almost daily, it feels right at home in my hand.

I had a P320 in 357 Sig for a while, but sold it because I had some feeding issues with it. When it worked it was a nice shooting gun.

FNS 40 with a 357 sig barrel.

#2 is a glock 27 with a 357 sig barrel. But I needed 357 Sig magazines because the 40 magazines gave me problems with 357 Sig in them.

And right in the mix is an FNX 40 with a 357 sig barrel...hammer fired of course.

I've got a Glock 31 & 32, like both.
The 31 is actually a Glock 22 with Lone Wolf 357 Sig barrel for Glock 31.
My 5 shot averages with 125 HST were 1,385 fps and 1,358 fps respectively.
Its lackadaisical to settle for "better than nothing" when something better could be carried.
A lethal threat merits the same ASAP stopping potential regardless of location, light.
"Wouldn't want to or Nobody volunteer to" get shot by _____ is not indicative of quickly incapacitating.

There really are eight people with striker-fired 357 SIGs?
Runs off at the mouth about anything 1911 related on this site and half the time is flat out wrong.
